Medical Marijuana Commercial In California
Medical Marijuana Commercial In California – A first for the U.S., with a paid advertisement being aired for a medicinal marijuana dispensary in California. The advertisement, which is breaking new ground for drug use, is a step in a new direction, considering at marijuana’s past and the stigmas attached to it’s use.
When the add was aired, the network, KTXL in Sacramento, and its acting general manager, Mike Armstrong, expected the public to ring up and complain about the commercial, or at least some reaction. However, the public offered no or little reaction to the advertisement. Which is odd, considering how outspoken anti-drug campaigners are.
“I answer my own phone, and I have received nothing directly,” Mike Armstrong said about the advertisement which aired on Monday. “I expected more. I don’t know. I just did.”
Perhaps, this is due to public perceptions of the use of medicinal marijuana. It’s a popular pop culture reference, seen on television almost daily, is advertised in songs of many genres, is even the in the title of some number 1 albums (Such as Dr Dre’s The Chronic.).
California was the first state to legalize Marijuana use for medicinal purposes. It is currently putting forward a vote to the public, to see if recreational use of marijuana will be made legal.
